Please Welcome __________ __________ Peterson!!




Photobucket

After nine hours of labor build-up and five minutes of actual pushing we welcomed our new baby man-child to the world...9 lbs 2 oz, 21 inches, and one week early!! I fully expected to see sideburns and teeth on him with as giant as he seemed when he came out. Samye did incredible and pushed like a champ. And check out how beautiful she looked AFTER giving birth. She is posing with our incredible nurse, Micki. Obviously, we are stumped on names. At first we were thinking of some soft, gentle, classic names, but after seeing his sheer size and huskiness we are considering Bubba, Bear, Ox, or some variation of those names. We'll keep you updated. Careful on some of those pictures and videos...there are some borderline gross umbilical cord shots. That's what happens when Dad's in charge of blogging. :)

I'm glad everything went well and you only had to push for 5 minutes. Now that your third is bigger than the rest...I'm really nervous to get pregnant again. Yikes!!!
